1987 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV by Bertone
Documents: Japanese Export Certificate
- Restored by Lamborghini Polo Storico
- One of only two built with gold interior trim
- A true icon of 1980s style, presented in an iconic colour combination
Following its completion, the car was delivered new to the United States, where it remained for a number of years before being imported to Japan. It was eventually acquired by its current Dutch owner and sent to Lamborghini Polo Storico for an engine-out restoration. The car was found to be in good condition overall before the work commenced, and it was fully stripped to bare metal and refinished in its original colour combination of white over white, and all of its 23-karat gold trim was refitted. The car, the first Countach to be restored by Polo Storico, is accompanied by a book of restoration photographs, chronicling the work done by Lamborghini Polo Storico, as well as restoration receipts and a certificate from Lamborghini’s Polo Storico department confirming the restoration and authenticity of this rare Countach. According to its owner, the car runs and drives well and is said to shift smoothly, providing a wonderful driving experience.
Arguably the quintessential 1980's supercar, the Lamborghini Countach became not only a supercar legend, but also the poster child for a generation, combining all the excess and flair that the decade of the 1980s was known for. This particular Countach would fit right in at Miami Beach or in any Lamborghini collection as a wonderful example of one of the marque’s and Marcello Gandini’s most iconic designs, and one restored by the factory itself.
Please note that the gold trim on this Countach is in fact 23-karat gold (992 fine), as opposed to 14-karat as noted in the printed catalogue.
Pregasi notare che il rivestimento degli interni di questa Countach, non è, come erroneamente descritto nel catalogo, in oro 14 carati ma in oro 23 carati (finezza 992).
